    Police Chief Resigns After Emailing "Are You A Jelly Belly?" To Staff

    Police Chief Resigns After Emailing "Are You A Jelly Belly?" To Staff

    Winter Haven, FL (AHN) - Winter haven city's police chief resigned all of sudden when employees criticized his "tough fitness talk" in an email, "Are you a Jelly Belly?" After the fracas, Police Chief Paul Goward did not give a reason for his resignation with immediate effect.

    City Manager David Green told the Ledger of Lakeland that the jelly-belly email, urging employees to get in shape, was definitely a catalyst. Green backed up Goward saying, he did a good job in the last 21/2 years as chief of Winter Haven.

    Goward wrote in the e-mail, "If you are unfit, do yourself and everyone else a favor. See a professional about a proper diet and a fitness training program...We didn't hire you unfit and we don't want you working unfit. Don't mean to offend, this is just straight talk. I owe it to you."

    Apparently one of the officers made a complaint to city officials in a letter that read, "I have worked for the police department as an officer for a long time and I have never seen such a morale problem like there is and this letter from the chief of police is the icing on the cake."

    Sound like someone "Can't handle the truth" complex, or to many jellyrolls.
